To be honest, I didn't enjoy learning the violin. I was reminded constantly that I was never good enough. Now, as a teacher I put my students first and constantly check if they're enjoying the demanding challenges of learning the violin.
I'm a professional violinist and conductor from Argentina. Started learning at 8 years old, I struggled to practice and make my teachers happy. After 15 years playing in an opera house but also playing live gigs with the countries mainstream rock and pop bands, moved to London to share my experience.
Born in Argentina, Herman Ringer held a position for 15 years in the orchestra of the Teatro Argentina de La Plata (the State Opera of Buenos Aires) in the first violins, and in January 2018 moved to London to pursue a career as conductor specializing in ballet.
He was leader in a South American tour playing Cosi Fan Tutte and another playing a Mozart based symphonic program. He also played with the Buenos Aires Philharmonic and Teatro Colon orchestras.
Abroad, he performed in Brazil and was invited for three international tours with the Youth Orchestra Of The Americas, working under the baton of Placido Domingo, Gustavo Dudamel, Benjamin Zander and Carlos Miguel Prieto. In London he collaborated with the Lambeth Orchestra and I Maestri.
In popular music, he played with and arranged strings and woodwinds for mainstream and up and coming artists in Argentina alike.
Since 2013 he started his conducting studies in the Collegium Music of Buenos Aires under Maestro Mauricio Weintraub, and in the Pontificia Universidad Católica de Buenos Aires under Maestro Carlos Vieu.
He also participated in the ballet conducting seminar under Maestro Emmanuel Siffert (Switzerland) and the George Hurst Conducting Course under Maestro Saglimbeni, Denise Ham and John Longstaff,
while also taking private lessons with the major conductors of Argentina, including Pedro Ignacio Calderón (assistant to Leonard Bernstein and winner of the Mitropoulos Prize), Jorge Rotter (chief of conducting in the Salzburg Mozarteum) and Luis Gorelik among others. In England he took private classes with Barry Wordsworth.
In June 2018 made his London debut as a conductor with the London Moonlight Symphony Orchestra, at St John’s Smith Square, Westminster.
In March 2019 toured as conductor with the Buswell and Nyberg’s Pop Up Orchestra, made up of various local musicians in Leeds, Edinburgh, Swindon and London and Exeter.
In September 2019, Herman was invited to become the conductor of the Salisbury Sinfonia.
He also studied double bass and drums, and composed 8 albums of original songs.
Perfect! Very happy with Maestro Herman and his methodology. Olivia, 8, inspired anew to play, learn and develop her music and viola skills and understanding. Gracias! Much Appreciated!!
Very gifted and smart student!
Herman changed the way I listened to music. He gave me a clearer understanding about why I was playing the instrument. He is very profesional and talented.
